Did you know that some state governments look at the reading levels of 3rd graders to plan prison capacities in the future?
By teaming up with The Carnegie Center for Literacy & Learning, we can help close the achievement gap that exists with children in our community. It starts with learning to read well.
Carnegie helps struggling children learn to read better. They have two reading specialists on staff, both educators, that assist with children in our community who fall behind in learning to read. The Carnegie after school tutoring program offers tutoring sessions to disadvantaged students with a one-time fee of $5 to enroll in the programs. Without resources available to help them read, they will fall behind in school, and their life opportunities will change forever.
